New Postdoc Enrollment
Enrolling the Northwestern University Non-Employee Postdoctoral Scholar Benefit Program is simple. You will make your selections on this website by using the online enrollment form.
You only have 31 days from your appointment start date to complete the enrollment process. This time period is known as your period of initial eligibility (PIE).
If you do not enroll during your PIE period, you will lose your eligibility to enroll until the next year's open enrollment period, unless you experience a qualifying life event such as: marriage,
divorce, legal separation and birth or adoption of a child.
If you are choosing to enroll your dependents, you must also complete their enrollment process within the PIE period.
You may choose from any of the medical, dental and visions plans available to you and your family.
You may also elect to enroll in the voluntary life insurance and the voluntary long-term disability plan.
Your enrollment in the Life and AD&D insurance is automatic regardless of whether you choose to enroll in any of the other benefits offered through this program.
Once you are ready to enroll, please click the button below to begin the enrollment process.
Please note: If you are enrolling in the Medical HMO or Dental HMO plan, you must select your Primary Care Physician (PCP)
for the medical HMO plan or your Primary Care Dentist (PCD) for the dental HMO plan. You will be required to enter the 6 digit office number for the doctor or dentist that you have chosen on the enrollment form.
Also, Pediatricians may be selected as a Primary Care Physician for children up to the age of 21.
